Life is not a spelling bee

Life is not a spelling bee.
You will not be eliminated because you made one mistake
“I” instead of “e”
In a millisecond the sound of the bell
Signifies your fate
I’m thankful for second chances
And third chances
And fourth chances
The bell that really counts will ring in a millisecond
After I have breathed my last breath on earth.
Did I take advantage of the infinite chances allotted to me
To make things better?
To make things right?
To be happy?
To make a difference?
To love and be loved?
To see the beauty in everyday life?
To live passionately?
Life is not a spelling bee.
You are eliminated after making multiple mistakes.
